Obama Speaks Under Arafat Banner
The Weekly Standard ^ | 03/21/2013 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 03/21/2013 7:12:44 AM PDT by pepsi_junkie

At a press conference today in Ramallah, President Barack Obama addressed the assembled journalists while standing under a Yasser Arafat banner:

"Hope everyone saw presser. If not there, it was notable that Obama and Abbas spoke from under a banner bearing pictures of Arafat and Abbas. Also another big banner was hanging on wall nearby with Abbas kind of superimposed on Arafat," the White House pool reporter notes.

If the Israelis trust this Muslim sympathizer to protect them, they will be annihilated. They can’t be that gullible.

He could have spoken away from the image. Because of that, he CHOSE to speak under it.
At Notre Dame, he made sure all references to Christianity were covered, but when it comes to Islam or Islamic characters, he has no problem.

Actions ALWAYS speak louder than words. What does this tell you about the real oboma?

Arafat was giving the invalid

we know for a fact that this admin pays special attention to the back drop, they get their colored faces in the crowd, they remove crosses or have them covered up but are we supposed to think that this was not noticed and I wonder how Bibi feels about seeing that.

Of course obama wants to honor a terrorist pederast who died of AIDS.

They see themselves as victims of oboma. He's using U.S. resources to build a muslim caliphate to surround Israel.
oboma has done everything in his power to help the muslims while at the same time depleting every bit of American resourses he can, plus he's destroying our military so we can't come to Israel aid. He's taking the U.S., the "restrainer", out of his way.

(obomas targets in the U.S. have been our economy, our military, and he's confusing our government. Do these three areas rig a bell? Who else tried to destroy our economy, our military, and our government? Think about that a minute.)

From 2009:

Georgetown. Notre Dame covered up a wall. The administrations at these schools (since the 1950s at least DUH!) have no respect for Catholicism. Parents are stupid to spend their and their kids’ resources there, as the kids learn how to put down Catholicism. And they are stupid to be surprised.
They’re better off at a secular college.

According to a Georgetown spokeswoman, Julie Green Bataille:

“In coordinating the logistical arrangements for yesterday’s event, Georgetown honored the White House staff’s request to cover all of the Georgetown University signage and symbols behind Gaston Hall stage.”

“The White House,” she added, “wanted a simple backdrop of flags and pipe and drape for the speech, consistent with what they’ve done for other policy speeches.”

Turns out, the usual movable drapery barriers were not tall enough to hide the cross and IHS emblem, a traditional Catholic abbreviation for the name of Jesus Christ. So the school agreed to cloak the entire wall structure with the religious symbols. (See photos) Our colleague Mark Silva has more details here.

The Democratic White House explained the move as a desire to keep the backdrop for presidential speeches consistent and not distracting to the audience. The president, who has yet to select a local parish for his family in Washington, has described his religion as “Christian.”

It tells me that some of the people in this country in hig positions of authority to protect and defend Catholicism are wimps of a very high order and Dante illustrates a special place for them in their eternity, which they seem to be ignoring.

We already know who BO is, and so do they.

They are horrible.

The new Pope does not go in for mixing it up with politicians and had fallen out of favor with many Jesuits who go for liberation theology _ NOT a requirement for being a Jesuit, which has its roots in authentic Catholicism.

It is a fact. Look at the reports of what happened at Georgetown regarding how sensitive the Muz in chief was to the backdrop.

Those wimps, not defending Catholicism and the crucifixion.

If they’re not sorry, looking at this story, they
re going to be very, very, sorry later

Glenn Beck question the real reason Obama is in Israel...

Obama turned down an invite to talk to their congress, instead wanted to talk to university youth (radical groups). Compares this to his Cairo speech and invite to Muslim Brotherhood.

theory is..he is motivating them for civil unrest against current government...same pattern as Egypt.

I love how much Israel trusts Obama. That tree was planted in an "envelope" so it could be totally removed. And when their Health Minister speaks of testing for "bugs"...I really don't think he's talking creepy, crawly.

Nice try Obama!!

I agree with you-and when Net is quiet and/or seemingly agreeable-watch out.

He reminds me of my cat when I’m brushing him; he purrrrs and seems to like it, but all of a sudden he’ll bite my hand.

I just hope the true Israelis know that there are Americans who find our present tyrant despicable and are truly saddened-no-sickened is a better word- by how he “represents” us around the world...Dear God have mercy on us.

I'm thinking of Obama bringing in and planting the tree in Net's yard and they're gonna dig it up to inspect it.

They don't trust Obama one bit.

It was planted in an "envelope" to totally contain it for removal.

Remember the story about the Russian "spy" rocks. (I think I remember that right.)

From Caroline Glick's article:

""The only revealing aspect of Obama’s itinerary is his decision to on the one hand bypass Israel’s elected representatives by spurning the invitation to speak before the Knesset; and on the other hand to address a handpicked audience of university students – an audience grossly overpopulated by unelectable, radical leftists."

Always the radical leftists!

Will the people of Washington D.C. finally discover who Obama is: THIS IS BARACK OBAMA: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW, IN ONE PLACE

Or do they already know, and are complicit? If that's true, it's time for CWII.
